Intel Xeon Sapphire Rapids suffers another unwanted setback

Intel has once again delayed the full-scale launch of its latest generation Xeon server CPUs, codenamed Sapphire Rapids.

At a conference earlier this week, the company’s head of data center silicon, Sandra Rivera, announced that Intel will need more time to validate the new chips with different system configurations.

Rivera assured customers that Sapphire Rapids chips will still be widely available later this year, but said unexpected bottlenecks led the company to further delay high-volume manufacturing.
